Audified releases Sphene Pro plug-in

Audified announces aptly-named ‘gemsTone’ of a plug-in to produce polished distorted bass guitar tones

BRNO, CZECH REPUBLIC: software applications, software effects, and hardware processors developer Audified is proud to announce availability of Sphene Pro — an aptly-named ‘gemsTone’ of a plug-in with which users can quickly produce polished yet unique and cutting-edge, contemporary distorted bass guitar tones to help make heavy grooves stand out, thanks to smart tone shaping and proprietary sound aesthetics with pedal-like familiarity fit for today’s metal sub-genres, such as Djent, itself an onomatopoeia of the high-gain, distorted, palm-muted, low-pitch guitar sound with which it is associated — as of June 24…

The aptly-named Sphene Pro plug-in is a collector’s ‘gemsTone’, getting its owner into unique and cutting-edge distorted bass tone zones with speedy, pedal-like familiarity and an astonishing variety of often aggressive sound options that live up to that appellation. After all, the greenish- yellow or brown sphene mineral consisting of a silicate of calcium and titanium occurring in granitic and metamorphic rocks in wedge-shaped crystals is rather raw and rustic, rarely occurring as a clean gemstone in nature. Perfectly polished, however, it becomes bright, its luxurious light exceeding even the shiniest of minerals. As an analogy this can effectively be applied to the Sphene Pro plug-in — producing polished yet unique and cutting-edge, contemporary distorted bass guitar tones with intuitive and variable bass tools in one virtual box, rather than picking and choosing from a seemingly-endless supply of traditional bass amp models and overcomplicated bass plug-ins when chasing down desired tones. Think of Sphene Pro as a contemporary high-gain bass workstation that makes heavy grooves stand out in today’s metal sub-genres and beyond, as highlighted by the Hi-Gain Bass Module wording boldly blazoned across its eye-catching GUI (Graphical User Interface).

It ably achieves this with the greatest of ease via the following features: five AMP models — choose from five pre-tuned amplifiers with completely different voicings, each tailored to accommodate various bass distortion aesthetics and playing styles; five CAB impulses — custom cabinet modelling based on parallel IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) technology with minimal phase issues and low latency; TONESPOT — extremely usable across all positions of the knob by building upon the development and success of Audified’s acclaimed series of ToneSpot plug-ins providing complex and efficient EQ shaping using only minimal controls; BLEND — mixes in the drive section of the pedal, the dry signal still being processed by the TONESPOT and CAB circuitry models when the control is completely turned down; BOOST — engages the boost function to instantly push the signal, producing a more focused bass tone to seriously satisfy any bass ‘Djentlemen’ out there; and Gate — an onboard expander-gate activated via the utility panel below the ‘pedal’ that includes a threshold Learn feature that can be engaged separately.

By being based on over 10 years of experience in modern metal mixing and mastering, with the aptly-named Sphene Pro plug-in Audified’s engineers have deftly developed a true gem of a plug-in to share their favourite distorted bass guitar tones with the rest of the world. Why not take a little time to experience the mighty rumble that shakes the company’s office windows every other day with everything needed neatly packaged in an intuitive yet complex pedal-like tool like no other!

Sphene Pro is available to purchase for $79.00 USD from Audified’s online shop here: https://shop.audified.com/products/sphene-pro

Sphene Pro can be directly downloaded as an AAX, AU, VST2, VST3 64-bit native plug-in for macOS (10.9 and above) and 32- and 64-bit plug-in for Windows (7, 8, and 10) — from Audified here: https://services.audified.com/download (Note that Sphene Pro is serial number-protected, so no iLok is required.)

I just bought the le version cos, $2, why not? Actually, it's really nice, clearly aimed towards the rock and metal end of the musical spectrum (fine by me) but sounds great. I'm sure the added flexibility of extra cabs and amps makes the full version even better but not $77 better for me today. Perhaps a sale one day in the future but right now, I'm actually very happy with the le version.

Lets hope that they'll also update their old amps (GK & Amplion) sometime in the future...

I have them too... GK never really excited me (but I got it for $1 so I can live with that!). Amplion sounds pretty good I think, plenty of room for improvement but it holds up pretty well, I'd say. Be great if it got an update.

Indeed you can, even on the LE version, so you can use your own bass cab impulses if you so wish.

I just published a review of Sphene Pro. The distorted bass tones in this plugin are not for the faint of heart to be sure. I had a lot of fun playing with it and will enjoy having it in my plugin folder.

Here's a link to the review:
